Zadig v. Baldwin, 166 U.S. 485 (1897)
Zadig v. Baldwin
Argued and submitted March 19, 1897
Decided April 19, 1897
166 U.S. 485
There was printed in the record, as filed in this Court, what purported to be an extract from the closing brief of counsel presented to the supreme court of the state, in which a federal question was discussed, and it was asserted orally at the bar here that in the argument made in the
Supreme .Court of the state, a claim under the federal Constitution was
presented. Held that such matters formed no part of the record, and were not adequate to create a federal question when no such question was decided below, and the record does not disclose that such issues were set up or claimed in any proper manner in the courts of the state.
The case is stated in the opinion.
